In line with last year’s design changes, Monaco Coach Corp., Coburg, Ore., turned to California-based Porsche Design Group to create a new look for the front and rear of the 2006 Monaco Dynasty Class A diesel pusher. “It’s a very slick-line design,” said Mike Snell, vice president of sales, noting that Porsche helped Monaco redesign the look of Signature and Executive A-bodies for the 2005 model year. “We are trying to make our coaches look like a family.” The 2006 Dynasty was shown to consumers for the first time at the Family Motor Coach Association’s (FMCA) 73rd International Convention, March 21-24, at the Georgia National Fairgrounds and Agricenter in Perry, Ga. Built on Monaco’s 45,160-pound GVWR proprietary Roadmaster S-series semi-monocoque chassis with an 8.8 liter 400-hp Cummins ISL diesel engine, Dynasty is available in 11 floorplans in lengths of 38 to 42 feet equipped with two to four slideouts. Additionally, the 2006 Dynasty, starting for a retail price of $399,612, features newly designed side-hinged baggage doors and a driver’s seat that automatically moves forward when the slideouts are extended.
